MIA

So... I haven't been around as much this week in blogland and I feel left out of the loop. I miss it! But we've been doing a lot of swim lessons, house stuff - you know, summer types of things. Here's a picture of my grouchy daughter at the lake today. Sometimes she's really a sour puss and doesn't want me to take her picture, but I did anyway because she's wearing the little hair clip I whipped up for her. I thought she looked cute even with a scowl on her face!
But it's all these type of activities keep me away from my computer and usually that's okay, but sometimes I really miss seeing everyone's pretty blog posts!

In the evenings I try to squeeze in a little creating - here's a new polka dot birdie I made and put on a decorated spool. I think he's kinda cute - especially on one side where his eye came out in the dot. Cute.


And then this morning I made this little pillow/wall hanging, and soon I'm going to make more for my Etsy shop Trinkets with different birds because I really love birds - can you tell? :) I'll post more pictures of the other ones when they're done. What have the rest of you girls been up to this week?

I have a girl at home just like yours. lol (well acutally 3 but my middle one...wow). I have pictures like that because I feel that is reality and that's what we scrap and love. We can't always get that perfect picture! I love your creations so much, I really need to spend more time with my sewing machine. Been busy creating albums and spending time with family as well. Enjoy your night.

Maybe she wasn't scowling, but was lowering he head for you to get a good photo of the clip..!!! It's touhg when life is so busy that it's hard to find time for yourself. Good to see you've found some time to make some cute birds.

i love your grouch! my daughter was, and still is, the same way about photos. she's 21 & i had to have a major argument with her to get a few photos when she was home! so silly those girls.
your cheerful birds are so sweet & sure to put a smile on her face! :)

Love your blog, Laurie. Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me. I know what you mean about having little time for blogging right now. I guess it's because it is summer...and we have to take advantage of the beautiful weather outside, but I will stop by again...
Stay Cozy, Carrie

hi laurie!

yes, your daughter looks adorable, scowl and all.

summer is busy and that's a good thing but i am so itching for some blog time. in fact both of my boys are busy playing and i thought--a ha!--i'll sneak in some blogging. as soon as "leave your comment" appeared, my son was calling for me. mommies like to play, too!

The book sounds very interesting. And the pincushions you've made are so cute. Great color, design &fabrics.

What a nice give-away idea. I'm sure whomever wins they will enjoy it. I know I would.
